I read in tonight's Miles City Star, they have charged three young men for the cat thrown into the bonfire out at Kinsey. According to the paper, they were actually bragging that it was really cool.

Three charges in cat's injuries
By Elaine Forman
Three local men were arrested for allegedly torturing a cat by throwing him in a bonfire near the Kinsey bridge in the early morning hours of Oct. 3.
According to Custer County Undersheriff Pat Roos, Colton Nielsen, 18, was arrested Tuesday night and Joshua Yates, 19, and Trevor Yates, 18, were arrested Wednesday morning.
Roos said Deputy Dave Power headed the investigation. Several tips came in after the event was publicized, and a witness came forward in the case.
Each man is being held in Custer County Jail on a $10,000 bond and charged in 16th Judicial District Court with aggravated animal cruelty by accountability, a felony.
According to court records, the three men and three women were at the Kinsey fishing access in the early hours of October 3 and started a bonfire. While drinking beer, the group could hear cats in the area.
Allegedly, Trevor picked up a nearby cat, and all three men agreed to throwing the cat into the fire.
One witness said Colton choked the cat, then walked over and threw the cat in the bonfire.
Another witness said she saw the cat thrown into the fire, and it "burst into flames."
Later that day, Tiffany Espinoza, Simon Brauwn, Marie Shackelford and James Daugherty went to the area to go fishing. Tiffany heard a cat meow and noticed him lying near the river bank.
Simon wrapped the cat in a sweatshirt, and they brought the cat to East Main Animal Clinic.
According to court records, on Oct. 15 the three men were overheard talking and laughing about throwing the cat, pictured in the Miles City Star with gruesome injuries, into a bonfire. According to a witness, they allegedly said, "Hey, did you see that cat pictured in the paper the other night? We did that. Oh, my God, it was soooo cool!"
The cat suffered serious burns to his right side, his tail, all four paws, whiskers and genital area, as well as damage to an eye. He also suffered internal injuries. After several operations, Dr. Jean Lindley removed his tail, a toe and a leg.
According to an earlier story from the Star, the injuries were so severe that the cat's insides were visible, along with tendons in his leg. At one point, it was not expected to survive, but since then its owners have been located, and the cat is recovering at home.
I'm choking on my own rage here ...

I want people to stop and think about what might've been going on in their lives
maybe they killed these animals as a release, rather then another person, or themselves.

Are you going to go shoot an abortion doctor and claim you were protecting the lives of innocent babies???
In this day and age, there is no reason for a women to become pregnant unless it was her and her "significant others"choice
leah, the cat was unfortunately put down.
the death (abortion) of a unborn baby (personhood thread) is okay. It seems so conflicted.
These anonymous losers posting in this thread display a real sad side of Miles City
